This class will cover as much about crabbing 101 as can be delivered in 75 minutes.

Topics will include: crab habits and addictions; the rules for catching and possession; the many ways to catch crabs such as trapping, snaring, and netting; how to keep crabs alive; cleaning crabs; cooking crabs; picking crabs; and freezing crab meat.

We will look at many equipment options and make suggestions as to how to best set up a pot.  We will discuss the best baits, the best Whidbey Island locations and times, and how to keep from losing your pot.  If we have time, we might even trade recipes and taste the results.
